STUDENTS & VOLUNTEERS
Volunteering at The Fountains Federation can be personally rewarding and can also help you to ‘give something back’ to your community. Volunteers bring with them a range of skills and experience that can enhance the learning opportunities, achievement and enjoyment of children at our schools.
As a student or volunteer at Fountains you will be giving your time to help others but you will also increase your own confidence and get a sense of satisfaction and achievement. It’s a great way to try something new and gain new skills, maybe even increase your future job prospects. We welcome and encourage students and volunteers from the all sections of the local community.
Anyone wishing to become a volunteer or a student completing a placement, should follow the process below.
1. Register of Interest Form - complete and email to the nominated person below.
2. DBS - contact Kath Linstead to either apply for a DBS or to provide current DBS information.
3. Policies - read and understand all policies and procedures highlighted below.
Any questions or queries can be directed to:
Catherine Shakles- Primary School (EYFS-Year 6)
Louise Burke - High School (Year 7 - Sixth Form)
Kath Linstead - DBS enquiries
Before starting to help in school, volunteers will also be invited in for a formal induction where we can explain the school’s expectations of students and volunteers and just as importantly, explain what can expected from our school. Students on a placement and regular volunteers will require a DBS check prior to starting with us.
